The video of Italy striker Immobile going down screaming and withering in the box has gone viral on social media.
In the video, the Italian striker is seen immediately getting up and running to Barella to celebrate the goal as soon as he realised his teammate has scored the goal.
Nigel Owens was quick to react on Immobile’s theatrics on the social media and went viral once again:
He tweeted: “This is not soccer “ oops actually it is.”
Five things you didn’t know about Nigel Owens – including new job
#1. How he started refereeing
Playing rugby at school, his team hadn’t won a game all year, and needed to kick a conversion for victory. It was Nigel’s moment of glory. But it didn’t go to plan. The ball “went closer to the corner flag than it did to the uprights. I was a laughing stock in the school.” His coach suggested, rather forcefully, that it might make more sense for him to oversee the games rather than play in them.
